Thank you. Very Sad, there are dead birds being reported throughout Arkansas, Texas and Oklahoma, even dead ducks that did not make it.

I just checked a box I have had out for years that has never attracted nesting birds, though I saw a nut hatch and a blue bird go in it during the recent snow. I found a recently dead male blue bird. I also saw a dead chickadee through the widow yesterday atop the snow yesterday late and when I went out today to see if I could determine if it had had a collision or whatever it was already gone. A scavenger must have found it in the night. So, it leads me to believe that there are many more dead birds than evn those we are finding. Jerry Butler

Just checked our three boxes and was happy to find them empty. I saw 6 or 7 bluebirds daily and they fed on dried mealworms, suet and peanut chips most of each day.

I checked my boxes and had no dead Bluebirds. I think feeding them 4 six ounce cups of mealworms per day in a Bluebird feeder saved them. There were six Bluebirds feeding from daylight to dark each day. I also chopped up peanuts and suet for them. It looked brutal outside! And it felt it when I was feeding.

I am receiving reports of dead birds in boxes, barns, garages, and in yards
from all over Arkansas and Texas.. This is a terrible hit on our birds.

After reading the emails about the Bluebirds I told my brother to check his
box. He had 9 dead birds. He reported last week that he had two dead Indigo
Buntings. Take the Indigo ID with a grain of salt. He lives in Sheridan.
